I got into all my colleges and was accepted to each school’s main campus! I’m so thankful for all of ThriveAdmission’s help and guidance throughout such a stressful process. It made all the difference!

Senior, Holliston High School

Thank you for all the help and guidance you have given me throughout my college journey. The process seemed very daunting at first, but you helped me break it down and develop a college list with many good options, something I struggled to do on my own. Then you helped me make my applications and essays the best they could possibly be; that was a big factor in eliminating stress and helping me get accepted to a variety of schools, all of which were great fits for me. You helped me stay motivated when my attention started to slip. Your positivity and ability to help guide me through applications made the process fun! — Newton North High School Senior

My son worked with Katie through the whole college application process. She was very knowledgeable and wonderful to work with and I highly recommend her. Katie helped my son brainstorm essay topics, proofread his work, and assisted with the application. She made it easy and less stressful and the results speak for themselves — he has already been accepted at three schools. — Lauren, Parent of a Senior

I have known Katie in a professional capacity for over 25 years.  Her energy and enthusiasm are boundless.  She always gives 100%.  Any college applicant would be lucky to have Katie in their corner! – Former Harvard Law School Career Services colleague

Katie was such a help with the college essay writing process! My son had a good attitude and some good starts on essay topics, but also executive functioning issues and, as we know, a parent’s best efforts at helping can start to sound like nagging in a teenager’s ears. Katie let me step away and I was thrilled to hear them laughing together as she reviewed his work and gave him strategic pointers for strengthening his writing into the best it could be. She helped him stay on track with tasks and check ins. We are thrilled with the results as he was admitted everywhere he applied except two schools and was waitlisted at one of those. Thank you Katie for making this piece of the process much easier! — Bedford Mom

ThriveAdmission has the best advice!

Best investment I ever made was ThriveAdmission.

I can’t say enough about Katie and her work with my daughter. She’s a consummate professional, deeply knowledgeable, highly organized, and somehow knows how to be both an enthusiastic cheerleader and a detail oriented taskmaster — all with a  bright smile. My daughter was approaching her college search without much direction or organizational support from her mother and me — due in part to recent divorce and our more hands-off parenting style. Katie provided a steady hand in helping my daughter gain focus and outline a path forward — helping her refine her search of pros and cons of decisions from location to finances to course of study. She was an extraordinary guide and editor of my daughter’s personal essay that resulted in an authentic and well-written product. My daughter starts college in Paris in a month and she could not have done it without Katie. I can’t recommend her strongly enough. — Nantucket Dad

The college I chose I fell in love with during Accepted Students’ Day and felt completely at home there. I can’t thank Katie enough for everything she has done to help me! — Natick High School Senior

The admission process was stress free with ThriveAdmission on our side.  I could never imagine trying to negotiate all the logistics and secret pathways of college admissions without help.  Thankful I could take a back seat as our first born went through this crazy and ambiguous process.  Forever grateful. — Boston Area Mom

Overall, working with Katie gave me more confidence stepping into the college application process. She was approachable, flexible with timing, and easy to work with, even with my busy schedule. If I had any doubts or needed my essays to be looked over, she was prompt in her response. Even though I started my college application process later than usual, Katie’s guidance both outside of and during sessions helped ground me in the right direction. — College applicant from Iowa
